With your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive.
The purpose of the Alpine Mission Fund is to support the mission of the Presbyterian Church in the Alpine Presbytery area by providing resources to parishes and to new initiatives that seek resource support. This includes Cooperating Ventures that have a Presbyterian component.
The Fund is for everyone, it has been set up to be accessible for any of our churches.
The Fund is not to prop up the old but to encourage the new.
The Fund is endeavouring to grow the life and influence of our worshiping communities and their witness to the gospel.
